about me

Hello Ruby Tuesday...

 

I'm from the States but have lived in various countries overseas for half of the last 16 years.

I've had the honor of representing the US (as a junior), Bermuda and Costa Rica in international tournaments

When in the States, I live in the DC area and play the WBL Unit game

Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Michal Czerwonko's bidding problem: KQJ63 754 AJ AKT
Pd has to have values somewhere.
Protection after a weak 1NT
(Clearcut)
Your Path to Success
I concur that the bid comes up infrequently. I also think that bids that move our own auction from the one-level to the four-level should be well-defined and infrequent. Or in CompSec parlance, "It's a feature, not a bug."
Discard Problem
I didn't open a heart, double 2 or balance over 2? Are you sure it's me?
Your Path to Success
4D to me would require a running suit
Play Problem
My first thought was "small spade"
How to get to slam on these cards ?
Over 2C, if I'm north, I have a slam drive. I would rather blast than make a nf call.
The plays the thing
Craig, why would you double 2N and not double 3D with that hand
Prahalad Rajkumar's bidding problem: AQ32 AQ52 AQT7 Q
Yes, the opps haven't bid 2H naturally
Rohit Gupta's bidding problem: KJ8754 --- AKQ96 A8
Except, on a non-club lead you can set up the cards to make opposite a 4x3 yarborough.
